TTT: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For the First Time In 2016

Top Ten TuesdayIt’s Tuesday!  I’m still a week behind on the Top 10 Tuesday challenges from the Broke and the Bookish, which does seem to be about how my life is running right now. I do want to figure out what books I most want to read next year – but for right now, I’m taking a look back at some of the new authors I read this year. I’m skipping the picture book authors for now, as that would be a whole top 10 of its own.

Middle Grade

  • Adam Gidwitz
  • Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
  • Robin Stevens
  • Rita Williams-Garcia



  • Alwyn Hamilton
  • Jenny Han
  • Tanita S. Davis



  • Ann Leckie
  • Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda
  • Zen Cho

It looks like I’m short on new middle grade fantasy authors, that I read more contemporary realistic teen fiction  than usual this year- but true to form, my  favorite new adult authors all write speculative fiction.

Who or what were your favorite book/author discoveries this year?

  1. Monstress and Sorcerer to the Crown are both books I’d like to read, and probably Rebel of the Sands as well. And your middle grade books look fun, too!

    So much love for Monstress! I can’t wait for the next volume. I need to read Ann Leckie’s books because I’ve heard good things from trusted bloggers. I’m also curious about Alwyn Hamilton and Zen Cho.
